My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Washington
I have been been put on light duty from my AP in Nov 2017, and now my employer who terminated me last Nov 2016 ( when my w/c claim was orginally closed) but since then I had to do several appeals/ protest and finally recieved my surgery to fix my injury, its been 6 months post op and I have been just offered a light duty option at my employer, with a significant raise which makes me wonder if its TOO good to be true. I feel as though they are offereing me this to basically get me off of my time loss benefits, and in turn when i do take this position they will fire me.... since washington state is a at will employer. Any thoughts on if i should take this job offer? because of my employer offering me a light duty option my time loss benefits have stopped.
All the Current protest from the employer are still in play we have a court date in about 4 months for my claim has been pushed to the point where it will be litegated.
